Gmail is a free, advertising-supported email service provided by Google. Users may access Gmail as secure webmail, as well via POP3 or IMAP protocols. Gmail's spam filtering features a community-driven system: when any user marks an email as spam, this provides information to help the system identify similar future messages for all Gmail users. Google also provides GMail alternative for business - G Suite Mail.
Face to face in the news:
2011 - Google+ integrates into GMail to catch up with Boxer
Usually the companies that develop and sell intranet portals, position them as an alternative to the Email. They say that instead of endless mailing back and forth, your users can now work with data in one place. But with Google - it's another story. Google wants companies to use Google+ as a social intranet solution and continue using GMail. So that's why both solutions have been closely integrated. In GMail you now can filter messages by Google+ circles. So, if you create a Google+ circle for a workgroup, you can view all emails related to this workgroup separately. In the right column near the message you now can see the latest post of this contact in Google+. In addition, contacts in GMail will be updated, if your co-worker updates his profile in Google+. Thus, your address book will be always relevant.
Finally, the attachment in GMail messages can now be shared to Google+ circle. For example, you received a contract from the client - and can quickly share it to discuss with department managers.
Obviously, such integration will soon appear also in Google Docs, so that you could easily share files and documents to Google+ circles. For now the similar Google Docs sharing works via the Google Groups service.
